After their river bank wedding ceremony, Samantha and Mark’s guests gathered around the family’s Virginia barn for a casual backyard wedding reception.
Design Cuisine set up a tasty lemonade stand to complement the farm troughs of canned drinks on ice for the reception.
Guests played lawn games and enjoyed a photo booth from The Prop Stop. Later in the evening, there were dancing and wedding reception traditions like the bouquet toss.
We used a soft burlap table linen and classic blue napkins to compliment the white florals. Lynnvale used whitewashed boxes for the centerpieces and Meant To Be Calligraphy created a chalkboard menu for the dinner buffet. We had open seating in the barn but reserved the larger tables for the families.
Again, thanks to Natalie Lane Photography for the great memories.
This wedding was important to me because many years prior, I coordinated a wedding where I worked with a son from Family C. Less than a year later I got to work with a daughter from Family C, who married a son from Family E. After that I worked with another son from Family E. This bride is also from Family E. Between 9 “kids,” I got to work with 5 of them. One was already married when I first met the families, and 2 are still unmarried, I think.
